    So I was wondering what exactly are trophies, and what are they for?

    Wait till you hear about the badges. You can sew them to your Gilet if you like.

    Wash em then!

    You'll notice the post was edited, he'd put badgers the first time. Just think a badger instead of a trophy.

    How did this all start? ‘Badger’ is a nickname a select few call me, I think on account of my stripy beard. 100% organic and natural. Nothing to do with cycling or the fact my real name isn’t far off Blaireau.

    I don’t mind the name really, but some French horticultural students who did work experience with me for a few years said in France it is a derogatory term for a miser or Scrooge.

    Round here, there are plenty of badgers to craft badges from. The ones up on the main road come pre-rolled and flattened. I could post some to CC HQ to hand out at the next prize giving.

    Google the entire phrase. I thought it was particular to Scotland, but apparently not.

  14. Nope, I grew up in the era of teachers strikes which stopped all that, either that or I can't cycle :laugh:

    I got a whole load of badges from Garmin Connect this week though :laugh:
